Hello and thanks for the query.
Very sorry to learn that your husband is in terminal stage of lung cancer.
As far as treatment is concerned,nothing can be done now which can cure him.
However till the last breath,a person needs fluids and nutrition.
The treating doctor will be in a much better position to advise regarding the type of nutrition or supplements needed by the patient.
Best of luck
